Tess Bailey: the galaxy's Most Wanted. Captain Tess Bailey is in deep trouble. She and her crew are on the run, pursued by a tyrant who'll take them dead or alive. Tess's best hope is a tall, dark, and much-too-appealing stranger, Shade Ganavan, who says he can help her. But his motivations are far from clear...

Shade Ganavan: arrogance, charm...and that special something that makes you want to kick him. With the dreaded Dark Watch closing in, what Tess and Shade don't know about each other might get them killed...unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other before it's too late.


This book sounds AWESOME!

I’m thrilled to share a short trailer and a giveaway with your today.

About the Author

Amanda Bouchet grew up in New England where she spent much of her time tromping around in the woods and making up grand adventures in her head. It was inevitable that one day she would start writing them down. Drawing on her Greek heritage for the setting and on her love of all things daring and romantic for the rest, her debut trilogy, The Kingmaker Chronicles, took form. She writes what she loves to read: epic exploits, steamy romance, and characters that make you laugh and cry.

Her first novel, A Promise of Fire, won several Romance Writers of America chapter contests, including the Orange Rose Contest and the paranormal category of the prestigious Golden Pen.

A French master’s graduate and former English teacher, Amanda lives in Paris, France. She met her husband while studying abroad, and the family now includes two bilingual children who will soon be correcting her French.

It’s all Ryden’s fault. If he hadn’t gotten Meg pregnant, she would have never stopped her chemo treatments and would still be alive. Instead, he’s failing fatherhood one dirty diaper at a time. And it’s not like he’s had time to grieve while struggling to care for their infant daughter, start his senior year, and earn the soccer scholarship he needs to go to college.The one person who makes Ryden feel like his old self is Joni. She’s fun and energetic—and doesn’t know he has a baby. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to keep his two worlds separate. Finding one of Meg’s journals only stirs up old emotions, and Ryden’s convinced Meg left other notebooks for him to find, some message to help his new life make sense. But how is he going to have a future if he can’t let go of the past?

I’m so excited to have Jessica Verdi on my blog today. I really liked What You Left Behind. I was lucky enough to read an ARC of it and I wrote a review earlier this month.

Thanks for having me on your blog, Emily!

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your

I live in Brooklyn, NY, which is one of my favorite cities in the world. I love watching TV and movies, reading, and traveling. I pursued a career in musical theater for ten years before writing my first book. It was never published, but it made me realize how much I loved storytelling, and I went on to get my MFA in Writing for Children.

2.  Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! (Pictures would be great!)

Yes, I have a dog named Francis. HeÂ’s an old rescue dog and is just the coolest.


3.  What is the most impulsive thing you’ve ever done?

I booked a trip to Thailand to volunteer at an elephant sanctuary after watching an online video of one of the sanctuaryÂ’s elephant babies rolling around and being cute.

4. Tell us about your latest book.

What You Left Behind is the story of a teen boy named Ryden whose girlfriend got pregnant and subsequently had to stop her cancer treatments. The book begins six months after her death—and six months after the birth of their daughter.

5. Would you like to live in the world your book is based in? Why or why not?

I guess I actually already do live in the world the book is based in—we all do! I got the idea for the book from an article I read about something very similar happening in real life.

6. If you could sit down and give your characters some advice, what would you tell them?

Try your best. It will be good enough.

7. Which of your characters would you like to be friends with and why?

I love them all! IÂ’d love to be friends with Joni because she would be a blast to hang out with, IÂ’d love to be friends with Ryden because he would always have an interesting perspective to add to things, and IÂ’d love to be friends with Alan because heÂ’s cool and loyal.

8. How can readers discover more about you and you work?

They can follow me on Twitter at @jessverdi, and visit my website:

9. What else would you like us to know about you and your books?

I tend to write about tough, sometimes sensitive issues, but I also try to infuse everything I write with humor and optimism.
